, virgina. key swing state. you were on cnn "starting point" the morning of the election, just yesterday morning. you were asked by soledad what signs you would be looking for of a romney win in virginia. >> i would look for the beltway counties around washed, loudon, fairfax, prince william. if governor romney were to win fairfax, prince william county and hold his own and stay close in fairfax, to me that would be a great signal that he's going to win the state. >> as i mentioned, i was reporting in those counties last night, prince william county which went for obama essentially the same percentage it did in 2008, winning all those counties you mentioned. what would you say are the big lessons you learned from your state about this loss for romney last night? >> there was a piece of good news. we won eight out of the 11 congressional races, kate, in virginia. at the more local level, republicans did very well. we've got more work to do in the northern virginia beltway. i was fortunate to do well there in 2009. those are the greatest number of independent voters who will vote the issue

for him last time? i mean, it's 5-5. did they move? i heard of a cnn poll that showed a tie. but then the dr, did you see it was 30% republican, 41% democrat, and it came out a tie. so they needed a plus 11 to get it a tie. does that mean anything? >> well, what the partisan identification balance turns out to be today is going to be one of the critical factors. this is another key disagreement with the two sides. democrats believe that when you look at the exit polls and see who showed up to vote, that there will be 4% or 5% who are democrats than republicans. in 2008, there were 8% more democrats. in 2004, when republicans had an especially strong turnout operation, it was level. >> do we know 2010? >> 2010 i believe had a slight democratic advantage. very slight. >> even though the drought come was so overwhelmingly -- >> well, we have strongly party voting, but not overwhelming. and it depends on the individual state. but republicans believe that the partisan identification balance today, romney campaign believes it will be about plus two for the democrats. >> independen

of love over the weekend. what is interesting is both candidates have op-eds appearing on today. mitt romney's a very routine, it seems to reiterate all of the same stuff. that he will create 12 million new jobs -- 12 million jobs will be created anyway. more of the same. and he has now taken on the idea that he is going to create real change. i can't believe it's not change. he has got real change compared to the president's change. >> stephanie: i thought he was going to call it of course i never said detroit should go bankrupt. >> sure. the president starts out by talking about how we have come together as a nation (vo) brought to you by metlife. stay tuned for the answer.

. >> just to break in, one of the biggest swing states, nevada, abc and cnn have called that for president obama. this was not a surprise. the romney people were pessimistic about nevada, but it's just another example of how this very small map, surprisingly small map, is turning blue in state after state. >> right. again, and if as we keep trying to do throughout this night for our viewers on c-span2, folks at, is put all of this stuff in perspective of the things that we know on the presidential level, every single one of them has broken in the direction of the president. new hampshire, nevada, wisconsin, michigan, minnesota, pennsylvania. every state that was plausibly up for grabs has gone to barack obama. an important note on that, almost everything we're seeing is breaking the way that public polling suggested it would. there was a big debate over the last month about whether or not media companies cooked the books on polls or whether or not people are just missing something in the electorate. what i've always told people about polls and i think it's proving out true ton

with a lack at some of the other stories making news today. good morning. >> good morning, soledad. cnn is projecting that ann kirkpatrick will return to congress. she barely beat republican challenger, jonathan payton. yet several house races are still up for grabs across the country this morning. in palm springs, california, republican mary bono mack, she's not giving up. she trailed democrat raul luis with all precincts reporting, but she says a large number of ballots have yet to be reported. mack's husband, connie mack, lost his bid in florida to bill nelson. in another tight race, alan west is not conceding defeat. he's demanding a partial recount in his re-election bid against democratic challenger patrick murphy. right now murphy has a very slim lead of less than 2,100 votes, but that's slightly more than what's needed to trigger an automatic recount. >>> the man behind that anti-muslim movie that caused so much rage overseas has been sentenced to a year in federal prison. mark youssif admit head used an alias without permission. he allegedly made a different name when he made t
